"What was it like to live in the world of Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and Herod, and how did the politics (and decadence) of the era impact the Jewish leaders when Jesus the Nazarene walked the earth?
The authors draw on the historical writings of Josephus, Roman historical documents and the Bible to put the times in context and suggest the daily challenges faced by all residents of the era.
The authors give the reader a vivid sense of the corrupt politics, in the fighting and scheming that went on between the Roman government, the powerful Roman generals, their puppet Roman leaders and the Jewish people, who had their own laws. One cannot help but compare it to the current events in Syria and the continued struggles in the Middle East.
A very enjoyable and enlightening read!"
